Just curious what and how do you guys use them? at lvl 18 i use the following:

1. flash - which has been very useful for aoe hate grabbing, since the only other aoe ability i have is overpower
2. savage blade - im not too sure how well this builds enmity, but i use this just in case i encounter dire need to build hate and i dont wanna go through the heavy swing > skull sunder rotation
3. straight shot - so i do a lil more damage

Probably looking at adding Raging STrike, Featherfoot, Keen Flurry and Second Wind later on.

I have Flash, Savage Blade, Featherfoot, Second Wind and the Crit from PUG at the minute, I am lvling GLD to 22 for Provoke and may look at the Parry up from LNC once I get round to lvling LNC up.

Right now as WAR I use all PGL abilities as my subs.

Featherfeet is great for the dodge buff obviously.
Second wind is an amazing heal that synergizes great with Berserk (I've had it crit heal me for almost 550 at level 33).
Haymaker is a strong, cheap attack that procs often as a tank and provides a good debuff too. Great to use to supplement your normal combos every few attacks.

Just so everyone knows, Savage Blade works just like Skull Sunder- it needs the first part of its combo to add the extra enmity. There is zero reason to use it on ANY other class than GLD.

Right now I have:
Featherfoot
Flash
Second Wind
Convalescence
Keen Flurry

I will definately be moving up to Provoke later on, as well as Invigorate. Then I'll have to start cutting things down for WAR.

IMO Haymaker (Pugilist) is pretty much a given for tanking, good with Featherfoot due to synergy, I think Haymaker and Featherfoot are better on MRD than PUG. I also take Provoke and Flash to round out the enmity toolbox.

Haymaker: the 20% slow is great, using it doesn't interrupt your emnity rotation (very important!), it only costs 40 tp and it procs more the more mobs you have on you. It is really nice against enemy DPS that hit slow and hard 20% slower auto attack is 20% less damage you are taking against auto attacks.

Until I got the Warrior's Soul I had Raging Strikes (ARC), Second Wind (PGL), Flash (GLD), Haymaker (PGL), and Awareness (GLD). WAR took away the first one and so far I'm limited to the last 3. Haymaker's a very good resource as long as you can place it on the hotbar where you're likely to see it.

Good a time as any to update what I said before.

Now that I've been 50 for awhile, I've been running a combination of Flash, Provoke, Featherfoot, Convalesence and Internal Release.

IR helps with IB and when I need a damage boost. It's great combo'ed with Unchained and Berserk, of Berserk when you want a higher chance of a nice meaty IB crit.

Featherfoot is another defensive CD, albeit an unreliable one.

Conv, Provoke and Flash should be obvious. Sometimes I drop Provoke for Second Wind, since that can act as another cooldown that heals for a goodly amount with Berserk up (nearly a thousand on a crit).

I world travel as a MRD (out of sheer contariness that it seems obsolete after 30). As such, at 47, I have 9 skills, which are always fun. I like the different playstyle that it creates having a wider range of skills to choose from. I have:

Haymaker
Convalescence
Second Wind
Provoke
Straight Shot
Keen Flurry
Venomous Bite
Feint
Protect (because, what the ****, I have 9 slots)

When I tank (because there is no way I'd be able to tank for other jobs without Defiance) I have :

Convalescence
Second Wind
Provoke
Featherfoot.

I have a little healing macro that I use with Convo and SW that I combine with Bloodbath and Thrill of Battle to just keep all my healing on one button. I find Provoke useful to have for those mobs that attack from range and don't group up around me. I toss a Provoke and a Tomahawk and that tends to hold them on me at least long enought to Tomahawk them again or make them the next target for the group.

edit: ah... been a while since the last one... >.>;; Oops
